This recipe has been a lomg time family favorite. Granny used to make the best plum cobbler and jelly. After she passed away in 2004, her recipe box disappeared. After a few years, some of her recipes would pop up mysteriously. I was so thrilled when my Mom found this one in a box of my great-aunt's things.
